COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Simtra Triple IPA delivers a punch in the face with its very danky hop aroma derived from Simcoe and Citra hops. You wanted more hops you got them.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Rerate: Dark copper color with small white head and little lacing- thick and oily. Aroma is resinous, some tropical fruits, pinches the nose like a bit of gasoline. Flavor is very bitter, lots of earthy vegetable, and syrupy candy malt finish. Big hop bomb. Full body, big alcohol presence- pretty intense. Very different from my first experience 6 months ago, and still good, but not what I remember and not what I expected.

11/16/2012: (10)(3)(8)(4)( Amber color with very small diminishing white head. Oily on the glass with no lacing. Aroma is Fantastic- huge huge fruity & floral hops! Amazing fruity hop flavor with an intense grapefruity bitter finish. Best $9 bomber I’ve probably ever had- puts Hoppin Frog’s $14 Hop Dam to shame...

22 oz bottle from Blackwell’s. Pours a slightly hazy soft orange color with white head that gradually fades to a thin wisp with lacing. Aroma is sweet fruit with dank hops and citrus sweetness, particularly grapefruit. Flavor is sweet malt with dank bitterness as an afterthought. Alcohol is very prominent, and slightly distracting from an otherwise enjoyable flavor profile. Thin to medium bodied with full, bright carbonation. Sweet complex finish.

Huhzubendah (2431) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 30, 2014
The beer is a murky yellow / orange with a soapy white head. Aromas of dank hops, resin, alcohol, pine. Sticky and sweet. Like sucking on a hopsicle. See what I did there? Aww yeah. Full bodied and palate coating. Certainly hop forward, but there is definitely a strong malt bill and noticeably above 10% abv. Full flavored. One could get f’d up right quick sippin’ on Simtra. Tasty.

Poured into IPA glass from bottle. Hazy golden color. Aromas of spice, various fruit, pine, and oak. Flavors of the same plus caramel, molasses, and plantains. Initially sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Dangerously smooth for 11.25%. Well done.

Defreni (2580) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2014
Flaske: Orange klar øl med et flot skumhoved. Duft af humle, tropisk frugt og citrus. Smagen er frisk selvom den indeholder et dejligt alkobid. Super lækker øl.

BuckeyeBoy (2649) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 28, 2014
22oz bottle thanks to Matt. Pours out a nice golden topped with a small head. Nose is pine citrus hops tropical fruit and caramel sweetness. Taste is as the nose with a great hop mix and a good malt to balance it out.

SpongeRuiner (676) - Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2014
One of my first from the brewery. This one pours a dirty penny color with maybe a slight orange hint. A big off white head on an easy pour. A huge hop aroma. Like swimming through a floral hop field. A fresh potent aroma. A strong hop flavor right off the bat. Almost minty. It leaves a giant hop flavor on the whole mouth. Not boozy exactly. But an overall strength is present. Still has a certain drinkable quality. An almost rubbing alcohol note is felt all around. Still a refreshing nice and strong triple.

VinegarStroke (267) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle: clear, dull medium deep honey, with moderate head and ok lace.very hoppy lift. Tropical, citrus and vegetation. Clean. Dense. Not green or reductive. Dry, not sour but bitter. Massive. Dense long and hot. Just a bruit. Classic over the top west coast IPA. Huge. This beer is one to share.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Poured a nice amber. Strong aroma - stronger taste. This is an 11.5% beer that has a very strong flavor, but that taste is not of alcohol. Definitely worth getting again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Pint mug From: Windmill Farms in Del Cerro (San Diego), Calif. Price: $10.99 Purchased: July 10, 2014 Consumed: July 18, 2014 Misc.: Born on May 20, 2014 Poured a honey, caramel, semi-clear color with two fingers of rocky white head. Sporadic spider web foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Above average retention on the top all the way down. Smelled a plethora of hops up front. Got grapefruit, citrus, Cascade, floral, orange rind and light resin. Also some rye, caramel and orange creamscickle. Tasted pretty close to the smell. Got citrus hops, Cascade hops, orange creamscickle, floral hops, grapefruit, nectarine and caramel. Some bitterness, but the 11.25 percent ABV felt about 7 percent. Medium-to-light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, slightly bitter finish. Just a fantastic double IPA. I’ve wanted to try it for a while and I’m glad I finally did.
